I want to raise some services throwing some commands in rc.local.
I tried creating the user by hand (the installer didn't create one) but it fails to run the command (I guess I made a mistake when creating the user by hand).
Should I have created the user with adduser and then change the /etc/passwd item..... but that will create a home directory for the user... and I will use it just to run the processes, so no shell and no home are needed. How can i deal with it?
